Yes, I can use flash and am in Firefox. And luckily I do not generally need to upload files >2G in size. I usually upload to the LMA and while my 24/96 files can be big, 2G would be way outside the bounds of what I would normally upload (a 2G 24/96 FLAC file would be longer than 100 minutes, and I can't think of anything I've ever uploaded that would have one track that's longer than 100 minutes!)

Obviously this could become an issue for people who upload video, or long speeches or something like that.

You can, of course, have the uploader app complain if a file is 2G+ and tell them that they need to split it into smaller files (if possible).

ok, working with another engr. here, able to simulate both typical kinds of 8080 port blocking (DENY / stall and REJECT / immed. send "no dice" to client).

my dev box is able to suggest a workaround for both for when the user goes to the "http editor" (only to find their org. is blocking port 8080).

i'm going to do some more testing and QA and then start the steps to get this multipart fix live... hoping by EOD...

Excellent, thanks.

Just in case, hoping you'll continue to keep the FTP upload ability just in case it doesn't work out well for some of us. :-)

ok, the fixes should be live now.
you *should* be able to use the updated [share] button now to create items (with a browser like firefox and flash installed) even with non-port80 blocked.

OK -- just tried and it was a lot better than before -- the "Share" button is clickable, i.e. gets past the spinning circle, it turns into a Flash SHARE button, but when I press the Share button and the file selection popup comes, I can select my files, and click "OK" or whatever, which is good. But then things take a wrong turn -- the uploader's attempts to send my files all immediately report "Security Error".

Let me know if there's anything I can do to help diagnose.

Thanks!

Ha! Thanks. Well I've got nothing to upload at the moment (rare for me as I've uploaded 205 unique concerts [though some have both 16 & 24 bit versions] to the LMA all since last June...)

I'll have something soon enough to test.

oh, and for now, we aren't planning to drop FTP for new item creation
anytime in the forseeable future (we're hoping it gets used less and less over time but no plans to disable 8-) )

I Don't Prefer Flash & I Don't Prefer using a browser to upload with.... It's just wrong. I prefer tried & true FTP without flashes & bells & whistles...

You have to fake it out as there's no link for LMA FTP currently. Here's what you need to do. On the FTP page here:
http://www.archive.org/create.php?ftp=1

enter the identifier of your fileset like:
bandname2009-08-29.flac16

Press "create item". Then in your browser, you will come to a new page with a URL like:
http://www.archive.org/create.php?ftp=1&;identifier=abcdef1234

Add the code:
&lma=1

to the end of that URL so it will look like:
http://www.archive.org/create.php?ftp=1&;identifier=abcdef1234&lma=1

and everything will be just like before.

Glad to be of service. A little hack here and there never hurt anyone. ;-)

Actually, I am liking the new way of uploading. I was a hardcore FTP person, but the newly-fixed upload (after my complaint) seems to be working like a charm for me

Hey man, I can't upload anymore. I'm on Linux and upload via FTP. HD video transfers always fail in the last three weeks.

Is there a way to get back to the FTP upload page once a show has been uploaded & you need to change or add files?

The NEW one just spins its lil wheels & doesn't tell me if there's any real progress? & the flash one just times out every time...

Just noticed when you mouse over the wheels it says 0%done.... so I guess that's progress?
